Promoting Forest Management with Owners of Medium-Size Parcels of Land
Abstract:In 1958, the Texas Forest Service began a project in the pine-hardwood region of East Texas to promote adoption of forest management practices on privately owned forested tracts between 500 and 5,0O0 acres in size. Thirty-four percent of the 476 landowners involved in the study responded to the management proposal and applied recommended silvicultural treatments to their forest holdings. Planned recontacts with landowners not yet practicing forest management may increase this percentage. Lack of market outlet for pine and hardwood was the landowners' principal reason for failure to respond favorably to a proposal that forestry be practiced on their woodlands.
